So, now the Leafs care about Tanev because they might trade for him?


F off Toronto.

No kidding, I remember their fans wanting nothing to do with Tanev years ago when the Canucks were brutal and the Leafs were trending up.

Tanev was a great member of the Canucks and should have been re-signed here for another four years back when his extension was due.


A much better choice than the D-men who replaced him.


Now its too late to bring him back... too old for the core we're building now.


He's a good guy... and a warrior and I personally wish him well.

Tanev is > then Myers.    It's truly too bad, both him and Edler had to carry the load.   Someone would have had to.   Not an era i'm going to look back very fondly on though either.   As soon as one went down, our season was done for.   For sure i'd welcome him back.   Now that we actually have a decent/good  team again.   Playoffs require depth.   And he's an upgrade on Myers right now.

I'd love to see him back for the rest of this year, and one more to end his career. 

he's got more than 1 left in him. I bet he gets another 4 year deal, and I'd be happy to give it to him.

I guess Tanev's accepted nickname among former and current teammates is Tanman - right?


Does anyone know the origin of it,  is it a riff on Rainman?



tanny is his more frequent nickname, but juice called him tanman sometimes. it just rhymes, that's the whole thing.
